BMW 3 Series Transformed With M3 Levels Of Power

Tuning / Comments

Can't wait for the new BMW M3 to arrive? There's now an alternative.

Over two years after the G80 BMW 3 Series debuted, we're still waiting for next-generation BMW M3 to arrive. Previewed by the BMW Concept 4, both the new M3 and M4 will be getting a controversial new look as the kidney grilles will be significantly larger. If, however, you can't wait for the new BMW M3 to arrive or want a new 3 Series that offers M3 levels of power without the new grille design, G-Power has unveiled a new tuning kit for the BMW M340i xDrive.

In stock form, the BMW M340i XDrive is hardly underpowered, packing a 3.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that produces a respectable 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.

This setup enables the M340i XDrive to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds. By tweaking the engine software, G-Power has increased the output to 420 hp and 442-lb-ft of torque in the tuner's entry-level GP-420 package. The 0-62 mph sprint time is also reduced to four seconds flat.

Upgrading to the GP-470 kit adds a stainless steel exhaust with a free-flowing 200-cell catalytic converter and a new downpipe that raises the output to 470 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Impressively, that's even more power than you get in the current M3.

With the GP-470 package installed, the M340i XDrive will complete the dash to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds from a standstill. If that still isn't enough power for you, G-Power's flagship GP-510 package increases the output to 510 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque by remapping the ECU and adding a larger turbocharger.

Top speed also increases to 186 mph with the range-topping package installed, while the 0-62 mph time drops to 3.7 seconds. That's a similar level of power the next-generation M3 Competition is expected to offer when it debuts this year. G-Power also offers the same upgrades for the BMW 3 Series Touring to fulfill your M3 wagon fantasies. Sadly, the BMW 3 Series Touring isn't sold in the US.
